observed and what i heard from ron case. i found by checking with justin gen and abc that there is a place for retail wine shop and it didn't say they wanted to be retail wine shop. they said we want to be a wine-tasting bar, either written in by them or abc, because that was the intent. here they were given a clear conditional use that said repeatedly in order to avoid confusion, it will not be a bar. the noise problem was brought to my attention, apart from the fact that i hear it when i go by there with the windows and doors open by many people and certainly by the managers in the building; when i went there on a different purpose that the elders there really suffer. i brought you some of the statements of support, okay? there is a petition, signed by people all over the city, and? in the greater nob hill area and nobody nearby within a block or two blocks except one i see on the page. statements on the black, i want to change the verbiage from wine-tasting to wine bar. now you can say it doesn't add a bar, but it does really. he added a bar that wasn't supposed to be there. the police

. >> [speaker not understood]. >>> good afternoon, chairman nolan, members of the board. i happened to catch ron owens this morning. he had a discussion about this topic on his radio show and people called in and people said, hey, i'm going to go shop elsewhere. yeah. you might gain a few bucks from the meters on sundays, but you're going to lose a lot of taxpayer money -- sales tax money from people deciding to shop elsewhere. i'm thinking we need to have a color sticker that says operating sundays on the meters because the letters are going to start coming to the editorial pages saying what happened. they didn't know. even though you're going to do outreach, you're still going to have a lot of people who don't know. if you don't do it -- at least have television coverage and radio coverage and big-page ads in the newspapers, you're not going to be able to cover everybody. but the thing is people are going to -- once they get that whopping $75 ticket or whatever, they're going to decide they're not going to shop in san francisco. you're trying to get people to take public transit. they're not g
a reality rally. the reality is ron johnson we all know came in. he was a rock star at avalanche he is going to turn this whole thing upside down and reinvent the department store. forget sales and promotions, that is not how you do it. he has never been in a j.cc penney and it is a lot harder than selling apple products. stock has had a huge roll up, it went and got hammered and has been coming back and the law firm there saying they got their act together, jpmorgan, they're bringing back this discount, they're bringing back promotions, they have a friend and family thing. this is what i like. i am a volume die. the volume has been phenomenal. i believe 95% of all news in the market somebody knew the day before it came out or the week before it came out despite the rules. something is going on. there's a 43% short position on the stock. if there is good news, there could be asia huge pop to the upside. unlike tim clark, ron johnson is considered a celebrity ceo and might get the benefit of the doubt. it is i ridge the idea but could be a huge short m bit. cheryl: his pain would be over. for

the company around by ron johnson, the guy who created the apple store, and best buy because its founder seems hellbent on taking the company private. penney was on the ropes until recently when we learned from manny tirico, right here, the terrific ceo of pvh, phillips venue and izod, you know all those great brands, tommy, calvin klein, that penney's has started to order a ton of merchandise from pvh for its store within a store. in fact, his comments marked the bottom in the stock. as i pointed out at the time, i shopped jcpenney on tuesday and it was actually quite nice. i had lost this really good hat. if anyone knows my hat, please give it back to me. i went to buy it and they were all out of them. at $21 jcpenney can go higher even without additional news. best buy, i think the fundamentals here are on the decline. it feels terminal to me. so it seems a little ridiculous to own the stock. just as i think it's a little ridiculous that schultz, the founder, can get the financing to make the takeover that he so desperately seems to want to do. let me close by saying i totally understand th
defense. now since then he has switched attorneys. joining to us talk about this is lucia mcbeth and ron davis, jordan davis' parents and their attorney as well john phillips. it has been a horrific three weeks for you. i cannot imagine how awful it has been, if you can, ms. mcbeth, tell me how you found out that jordan had been killed. what happened? >> a phone call from his father, my husband and i were in chicago for thanksgiving and i happened to come up to the bedroom and i saw ron's name pop up, and i knew the moment i saw his name, that late at night, i knew it had to do with jordan. >> did you know it had to be bad? >> i knew in my spirit it was not good. i knew that it could not be good that late at night for him to be calling. >> when did you, mr. davis, learn the details of what had happened in the parking lot? because the shooting was horrific, but the details around the shooting awful as well. >> yes. its first call i got was from the best friend of my son, and he had phoned his mother while in the car and his mother called me and i rushed to the hospital to see about my son
conservative. ron johnson is a tea party guy. he wants to give on the president before the end of the year and go ahead, i guess pass a bill that would extend the rates for everyone and that wouldn't pass in the house and say, okay, fine, we'll do it for 98%. put that in the president's court, get that done and is use the debt ceiling for spending. >> exactly. no, that is -- >> but he's not getting anywhere with boehner and cantor? >> it's because boehner so far is not willing to go along with that strategy. the way that it works for boehner is if he ultimately puts it on the floor and tells most of his members that they have a chance to vote against it and make playing their opposition to any tax rate increase. but he hasn't been willing to do that so far. he would get some republicans to join with dm democrats and it would pass the house. but he doesn't want to put something on the floor that would clear the house without at least half of the republican members. spending is a sticking point, but there is an asymmetry in the negotiations. democrats have laid out what they want on taxes, s
would be a bit cautious about how fast the results turn. look at jcpenney, ron johnson did a lot of creative things, but it takes time to turn around and old line retailer. look at sears, that's probably never going to turn. i think jolie is on the right course here. and he's got a winning strategy. one that schulze didn't have. and i think he's going to pull it off. but he may be more than three months, he may be tied beyond that. but we'll see. i think the board is acting responsibly trying to get the price for the shareholders. i'm not going against going private, they just have to make sure the public shareholders don't sell out at rock bottom prices and are treated fairly. >> i can't imagine he will nail a bid at 20. if you're right and they won't accept anything less, he's going to have his chance to turn this thing around. bill george, thanks, as always. >> thank you. >> we have an important interview coming up. one of the most influential voices of the tea party. congressman mick mulvaney speaking out about boehner and much more. ♪ [ male announcer ] 'tis the season to
more comfortable with. there are other changes they might be more comfortable with. host: ron has this suggestion from our twitter page. guest: that is a term we heard. when the cut health care, someone will be bearing the cut.t of that kin that is similar to the concept of those care organizations. they also include quality metrics as part of the contract, where they look at people's outcomes. one way to prevent against the u.s. skimping on care. host: this from sasha -- guest: that is one proposal that gets floated by democrats. medicare part d bargains for drugs. i do not know -- i do not think it would be a cure all, the one proposal that would fix everything. democrats think it would reduce the cost of medicare. host: is there a plan b? guest: we have seen them as the january 1 deadline before and get 30-day extensions. at some point they were working without an extension. medicare told doctors to hold off on submitting your claims for a little bit. that is a situation we have ended up in before. if we're talking months, we're talking about big pay cuts for medicare doctors.
health care because they endangered the life of the job, could the secretary ron those who provide abortions a business? i'll answer that for each too. in answer is yes. i believe that this language would allow the secretary to control what physicians prescribe, what health care patients can access. is there a single person in this room who thinks that the secretary should have that kind of authority, whether it is a republican or democrat? i have a bill, 6320, which repeals this clearly dangerous provision. a plan to reintroduce this bill in the 113th congress. i hope that this committee in a bipartisan fashion can work together in this effort. look, i do not know whether this section was an intentional provision or an unintended consequence. i would rather like to think it was an unintended consequence. this is the thing you get in at 2700-page bill that you have to pass and then finally find out what is in it. maybe you like it, and maybe you will not. this clearly is a provision where any secretary of health and human services can pretty much determined what the quality of care
